He bore in against Roobe, which in turn drove Faraday against the rails, and the gray had to give it up or go over the fence. He took s bit of revenge out of Roche, for he gave that colt a savage bite to pay for the crowding. Tben Dobbine con tinued on his course, and oy crowding Roche co bard he waa nearly driven over the fence, he won by a neck. He waa eet back, bowever.

Loth Yachts Becalmed for Hours in Haze and Fog. The British Vessel Finally Had lo Be Isn.ft Home by a Toe; and the Conter-Bonrder Got the friz*. By the Associated Press, Dartmouth, Sept. I.—To tbe great disappointment of yachtsmen generally, there wae a thick haze over the waters of the bay and out to sea this morn ing, and the wind was light from the uortb, with little prospects of freshen ing. Tbia wae not calculated to cause any enthusiasm anywhere, and espe cially as the decision of the sailing com mittee of the Royal Dartmouth Yacht club yeßterdav in withholding the prize from the Vigilant becauae the race could not be finished within the limit of eight hours, had caused considerable dissatis faction. Both the Vigilant and the Satanita were entered today for the race ar ranged fur yachts of over 40 rating. The regatta was under the auspices of the Start Bay yacht club. The prize waa 55 guiueaß, aud tbe course waa a triangular one, the distance three times around be ing 42 miles. The Vigilant got the beat of tbe first atrnggle tor poeuioD, aud at 10:30 a. m., when tbe atarting gun wae bred, the Vigiiant had tbe windward position and the lead, and crossed the line ahead of the Satanita. The timea were: Vig ilant, 10:30:0(3; Sautanita, 10:30:12. Both yachts got away carrying all their plain sail. It waa a tree reach to the western mark in a light out eteady air. The Vigilant from the mart drew away elowly and put about a dozen lengtha between herself and ber rival before a mile had been completed. Tbe wind, bowever, then began to gat lighter and the haze became thicker. Befon the western mars wae reached the yachts were almost obscured from view. It waa Been, tnougb, that wben thoy were about waif way out to tbe western mark, tbe two yachts had eet their spinnakers and the wind off shore bad hauled aft, W hen the boats rounded the western mark at the end of the first leg on tbe Brat round they were completely ob- Bcured from the view from ashore, and conaequently no accurate time could be taken. At 11:30 a. m, a Blight lift in tbe haze showed dimly the two racers beating up to the eastern mark, with the Vigilant holding a long lead, but ou a different tack lrom the Satanita. The latter waa standing in Bbore and beating along tbe land, appearing to be moving faster than the Vigilant, though the latter was in a better position for mak ing the eastern mark. Having come about for the third time near tbe land, the Satanita stood Btraigbt for tbe eastern mark and waa soon after warda lost eight of in the fog. The Vigilant bad previously disappeared in tbe same gboatly surroundinge, and the wind dropped to a mero land breezs. The Satanita made a great gain, it was afterwards seen, by standing in shore, and ehe got a tine land breeze when ehe eventually stood away for the eastern mark, and was to winward of her com petitor. Tbe Vigilant rounded the mark just a little ahead of the Satanita and waa holding her own apparently at tbe commencement of the broad reach to the home mark, but nearicg that point the Satanita pulled ahead and at tbe first end of tbe first round tbe British yacbt bad a lead of 48 seconds on tbe center boarder. The timea of the yachta at the end of the firat round were aa follows: Satanita 12:34:86, Vigilant 12:35:21. The Vigilant appeared to be gaining as tbe two yachts eet their spinnakers for the westward mark on tbe second round. Tbe wind wae then about northwest and it veered a trifle aa tbey again disap peared in tbe foggy haze on tbeir way westward. Only a slight air waa stir ring and both yachts were soon envel oped in the baze and consequently for some time afterwards nothing could be recorded oi their movements from tbe ebore. Now and then the fog would lift a lit tle and a brief glimpse wae caught of the yachts on their way to tbe western mark ou the second round. Tbe Vigi lant began to creep up on tbe SataDita and eventually overhauled ber. Some time later both boats became becalmed and they remained bo for about a couple of boure. The Vigilant waa a good waya ahead and eucceeded in getting out into the flood tide where ehe caught a Blight southerly air and loat the haze while the Satanita waa motionless on a eea of glass. Soon after 4 p. m. the Vigilant was descried returning home, beating in a paltry eouthweßt air, and when ehe was within a half mile of the mark the Satanita was seen to be coming in, towed by a tug. The Vigilant lay becalmed 200 yards from tbe line from 4:15 p. m. to 5:30 p. m., and then tbe sailing committee see ing tbe Satanita had returned altered tbe position of the committoe boat nearer to tbe Vigilant, thus giving her another line to croaß, wbicb she did a feweeconda later and waa awarded tbe prize.

A shoot of California sportsmen will be held at Santa Monica on the 14tb, 15th and 16th iuet. Gun club men will be preeent from all over tbe state and a due shoot is expected. THE FOOTBALL SEASON. Football talk is rampant at the two big California universitiea. Aa yet neither has secured an eastern coach, but already the captains have the men in the field practicing and developing new material. The annual contest be tween the two teams this year promises to be aa cloee aa it haa been in the past three years. Both elevene will atart with many new men. At Stanford it ia aaid that veterans such as Walton, Ken nedy, Whitebouae, Burnett and McMil lan will not don tbe cardinal this year. Halfback Frankenheimei'e father ia aleo reported to be againat the game and will not allow his boy to play. If all thoae rumors be true it means an entirely new set of backs for tbe Palo Alto boya. Still, with the aid of a good coach, new men can be rg; idly devel oped into championship form. Over at Berkeley several good meat of laat year's team will not play Me n ee«v tost. Hunt, Kay Sherman anu Pierce wiil be sadly misted. Raneome will be tbe star and half-back and ie expected to do even better work than last year. Dave Porter hae been practically picked out for tha other balf-baek. Porter it one of the pluckiest players on tbe grid iron field andean bite hit rubber mouth piece sa hard at the next player. The football sensation of the eeaaon is the strong team tbe Reliance club of Oakland ia getting together. Football prophets say that eleven is sure of the ehampionahip. The Olympio club team is not near so strong, aad the college teama will be composed of younger and more untried material. Beaides tbe regular scheduled games the final game of the season for tbe championship of tbe coast will be between tbe belt col lege team and tbe winning athletic olub team. AMONG) Till PUGILISTS. Jim Johnson, a colored fighter ol In dianapolis, once stood before Creedon for four rounds. Now Johnson bas ia aued a challenge to Ted Pritchard for a go at the National club of London at 15S pounds. If Pritchard and he should not meet Johnson wantt to box any other middie-weight, even the men in this country. Solly Smith, tbe Southern California feather-weight, is conducting himself like a first-olasanoodlnm in Chioago and has been arreated twice—once for vag rancy and again for assaulting an old man. He has been ordered to leave town, but cannot raise railroad fare, and may have more trouble. Now tbat George Dixon and Jerry Mar ahall have signed articles for a fight at 119 pounds, tbe Seaside club of Coney island and the Olympic of New Orleans are invited to bid for tbe match. As both are colored, their managers really do not want to go south, so tbe offers from there will be merely uaed to boom tbe purse. The objection witb the Coney island club is that it hat not yet been able to bave a finish fight. The Olympic has bid only $5000. Ever since Horace Leedt of Philadel phia failed to knock out Owen Zeigler, patrons of boxing in the east have been satisfied that be hat no right to talk of a match with Jack McAuliffe. Ed Gor man of Peoria will probably be matched against Leeds. Peter Jackton ia in Chicago where he expects to make money giving exhibitions of boxing in local theaters. Peter has got enough advertising since Oorbett's return to do a pretty good business. He may aleo go to Sioux City and look into the club's offer for tbe big fight. Jim Hall hat refused an offer ol a '.S2OOO puree from the Auditorium club of New Orleans for a fight witb either Joe Choynaki or Peter Maher. Hall tbinka tbe purse too email. Bob Fltziiminone, who ia now in the south, has teen Jsek Dempsey at bit training quarter! and says tbat he will whip Billy MoOartby in tbe Auditorium club. New Orleans, next Wednesday night, Fitz aayt that Dempsey ia in fine condition. TALK ABOUT FAKE. The eastern papers, in dealing with the Abbott-!'.verhardt mill, 'uggeat that it waa somewhat of a fake and hint tbat Abbott couid bave won h?d. be fought on tbe level. Tbe following is the style in which one writer handlea the mill: "Tbat Abbott had all tbe better of the fight for 22 rounds and then tuddenly 'cracked' it peculiar enough in itsolf; but wben tbe method of fighting and the result are conaidered with outaide mutters, the affair takes on a strange look, indeed. Here was a champion of England, and who in thia country proved himself of good class, beaten by a comparative novice. The Engliah man waa a favorite in the betting, but some New Orleans people played tbe winner as a 'cinch,' and gave it out long before the fight that tbey had an air tight. It looks very much as if there was a dark-skinned individual in the woodpile somewhere, but jutt where ia tbe question. Wat Everhardt a ringer? Waa Abbott in the play ? Wat there a throwdown for the benefit of tome bigb roller? All those queßtiona arise, and there it none to answer," AUSTRALIAN HORSES FOR ENGLAND. A London syndicate has entered upon a new experiment whioh will make the Australian horse an objeot of oommerce in England. The first trial shipment of horeea will abon arrive in London from Sydney, and it the animale find a ready market the trade will be rapidly ex tended. Aa Australian horses are much below tbe Englieb ones in price in the colony, and at on their arrival in Eng land thoy are muoh more likely to riae towards tbe Engliah market level than to drag the price of tbe Engliah horsea down to their own, a profitable business probably lies before tbe syndicate. Losses caused by the voyage are not ex pected to be great. HAL POINTER THBS GREAT. "You may talk about race horaes, but the greatest one that 1 ever saw that would try and keep on trying and never give up was old Hal Pointer," said Ed Seers the other day. "I could always tell when be wae determined to win, for he would lay back bit eara and go at it like a demon. The harder it was the tighter would hie ears be laid back and he would act aa if just determined that nothing should bsat him.

Wonderful Subterranean Hulls of the Old Dominion Finely Illustrated ia Glimpses of America. ninqn.nt ll.serlpMon of Weird Forma tion* Surpassing tha Im agery «r Aladdin's Cava. Allusion has been made heretofore to tba wonderful Luray caverns of Vir ginia, of which several beautiful illus trations appear in Glimpses of America, the Herald's premium book. These caverns attract visitors f nun all parts of the globe. They are the most brilliant and remarkable subterranean balls ol the world. The following is a good de scription, written by a recent visitor: At seme period, long subsequent to its original excavation, and after many large stalactites had grown, the cavern was completely filled with glacial mud, whereby the drip-stone was eroded into singularly grotesque shapes. After tbe mud bad been mostly removed by flow ing water, these eroded forms remained amid the new growths. To thie contrast may be aeoribed some of tbe most strik ing scenes of tha cave. The many aud extraordinary monuments of aqueous energy include massive columns wrenched from their place in tbe ceiling and prostrate on tbe floor; the hollow column 40 feet high and 30 feet in diam eter, standing erect, but pierced by a tubular passage from top to bottom; the leaning column, nearly as large, under mined and tilting like the Campanile ol Pisa; the organ, a oluster of stalactites, dropped point downward, and standing thus in tbe room known as the cathe dral ; besides a vast bed of disintegrated carbonates left by the wbirling flood in its retreat through tbe great space called tbe Elfin Ramble. The stalactite display exceeds that ol any other cavern known, and there is hardly a square yard on the walls or ceiling tbat is not thus ornamented. Tbe old material is yellow, brown and red, and its wavy surface often shows layers like the gnarled grain of costly woods. The new stalactites growing from the old, and made of hard carbonates tbat had already once been used, are usually white as snow, though often pink, blue or amber-colored. Tbe size attained by single specimens is sur prising. The Empress Column is a stalagmite 35 feet high, the other 60 feet high, a mass of snowy alabaster. Several stalactites in the Giant's hall exceed 50 feet in length. The small pendente are innumerable; in the can opy above tbe Imperial Spring it is es timated that forty thousand are visi ble at once. The Cascades are wonderful forma tions, like foaming cataracts caught in mid-air, and transformed into milk white or amber alabaster, while ths Cbalcedoay Cascade displays a variety ef colors. Brand's Cassade, which is finest of all, being 40 feet high, and almost as wide, ii unsullied and wax like white, each ripple and braided rili appearing to have been polished. The Swords of the Titans are mons trous blades, eight in number, 50 feet long, three to eight feet wide, and one to two feet thick, but are hollow and drawn down to an extremely fine edge, filling the cavern with tones like tolling bells wben struck by tbe band. Their origin, and aleo that of certain so-called scan's and blankets exhibited, ia from carbonates deposited by water trickling down a sloping and corrugated surface. Sixteen of these alabaater scarfs hang side by side in Hovey's balcony, three white and fine as crape sbawla, thirteen striated like agate with every ahade of brown, and all perfeotly transpaient. Down the edge of each a tiny rill glist ens like silver, and this is ths ever fly ing shuttle that weaves this fairy fabrio. Streams and true springe are absent, bat there are hundreds of baaine, vary ing from one to fifty feet in diameter and from six inches to fifteen feet in depth. The water in them ia exquisitely pure, except a» it is impregnated by the carbonate of lime whioh often forms concretioaa, called, accord ing to their size, pearls, eggs and snow balls. A large one it known as the oannon ball. When frac tured these spherical growths are fouud to be radiated in structure. Calcite crystals, drusy, feathery or fernlike line tbe sides and bottoms of every water filled cavity, and, indeed, constitute the substance of which they are formed. Variations of level at different periods are marked by rings, ridges and ruffled margins. These are especially strongly marked about Broadus lake, and the curved ramparts of Castles on tbe Rhine. Here, alee, are polished stalagmites, a rich buff slashed with white, and other's, like huge mushrooms, witb a velvety coat of red, purple or olive tinted crys tals. In aome of the smaller basins it sometimes happens that when tha ex cess of carbonio acid escapee rapidly there ia formed, besides the crystal beds below, a film above, ehot like a sheet of ice across tha surface. The quantity of water varies greatly at different seasons; hence some etalactitee have their tips under water long enough to allow taa eels of crystal to grow on them, which in a drier eeaaon are again coated over with etalsctite matter, by which singu lar distortions are occasioned. Contin uous etalactitee are often enwrapped thua till tbey assume an almost globu lar form, through which, by making a section, the primary tubea appear. Twig-like projectiona, lateraloutgrowthe, to which the term belictite has bean applied, are met with in certain por tions of the cave, and are interesting by reason of their strange and uncouth contortions. Their preaence ia partly due to tho existence of a diminutive fun gus peculiar to the locality, and desig nated from its habitat, mucoratalactitis. Tbe Toy Shop ia 'an amueing collection of these ireaka of nature. While in Chicago Mr. Charles L. Kt.hler, a prominent shoe merohant of Dee Moines, Ia„ had quite a tenons tune of it. He took such a severe cold that be could hardly talk or navigate, but tbe prompt use of Chamberlaiu's Cougn Remedy cured bim of hia cold co quickly tbat olhera at the hotel who had bad colda followed his example, and hatf a dozen persons ordered it from the near est drug store. They weie profuse in their thanks to Mr. Kahler for telling them how to cure a bad cold so quickly. For eale by Off & Vaughn, Fourth nnd Spring, and C. F. Heinzeman, '12,2 North Main, druggists.
